Presidents’ Day is traditionally a day that banks, the post office, and many government offices close down for the day, but there are some exceptions. While the majority of banks and credit unions will be closed on Monday, February 16, some will be open for regular business hours or limited holiday hours.
Bank of America, CitiBank, and Chase will all be closed on Presidents’ Day, but there are several banks that will be open for business on Monday, including TD Bank, Wells Fargo, and some Fifth Third Bank branches. Of course, there’s always the ATM if you need cash or online banking if you need to pay bills or make a bank transfer.
According to the Holiday Schedule, the following banks will not be open on Presidents’ Day 2015:
- Bank of America
- Bank of the West
- Branch Banking & Trust Company
- Capital One Bank
- Comerica Bank
- Compass Bank
- Huntington National Bank
- PNC Bank
- RBS Citizens
- Sovereign Bank
- SunTrust Bank
- US Bank
The Inquisitr previously reported that all of TD Bank’s locations will be open regular business hours on February 16. The bank has 1,275 branches that are primarily located on the east coast, with many branches in the New England States.
Wells Fargo will be open regular business hours on Presidents’ Day, but will be closed on the remaining federal holidays in 2015 including Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veterans’ Day, and Thanksgiving.
Fifth Third Bank, based in Ohio, will open some of its more than 1,300 branches on Monday. Branches are located in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Michigan, and five other states.
If you bank with a federal credit union, chances are that the doors will be closed until Tuesday. Many banks and credit unions have smartphone apps, so you can still check your balance, make a transfer or pay a bill using online bill pay when the bank is closed.
Presidents’ Day is a federal holiday, but don’t expect everything to be closed. In addition to the three banks that will be open on Monday, most retailers, restaurants, and car dealerships will be open for business. However, all U.S. Post Office locations will be closed, so that means no mail delivery — great news if you really don’t want to see another bill come in the mail.
